OK, you’ve waited long enough. It’s time to reveal the winner of this year’s Annual Search Engine Marketing Scholarship contest. I could fluff this intro out, but I know you’ll skip down to the winning entry anyway, so here it is:

Winner: 8 Stupid Things Webmasters Do To Mess Up Their Analytics – Linda Bustos

Congratulations to Linda Bustos who won the majority of votes from our expert judges. Linda’s entry was a great template for any “how to” article.

  • Enticing title.
  • Engaging questions at the beginning of the post.
  • Short, easily digestible, paragraphs with easy-to-read bullet points.
  • Lots of graphics to break-up the text and actually demonstrate her tips.
  • Lots of useful links.

Linda walks away with our mega-scholarship prize package and the honor of beating out some strong competition. Special recognition to our other four finalists:

Many thanks to all who entered the contest, read the entries, helped spread the word, and to our panel of esteemed judges.

I know all of our entrants are just dying to know how they faired, so I’ve shared the Google Analytics numbers of each entry below.

Until next year!
